Appeal to give the gift of time this Christmas
Can you spare a couple of hours a week to provide company to an older person living alone this winter – or give a carer the gift of some time for themselves? Scarborough Support for Carers is looking for new volunteers to help them combat loneliness and isolation. If you can spare a couple of hours a week or fortnight, you can make a real difference. A drop-in session where people can find out more is being held on Tuesday December 5 from 10am to noon at Derwent Valley Bridge Community Library in West Ayton. You can also find out more by calling (01723) 364808 or going to www.scarboroughsupportforcarers.org. Pictured are volunteers with organiser Sarah Lally-Marley.
